    Pros

    Management is very attentive and open to all varieties of feedback. I actually believe my opinion counts

    Cons

    benefits could be better. And the commission structure is pretty on par with competitors, but of course I'd like to see that grow!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are told all the time how valuable we are, so I'd like to see that appreciation translate into something tangible. Instead of offering us similar benefits as other agencies, make it better
